ROCKY RIVER --  Lutheran West lost its fifth game in as many weeks as it fell to non-conference D1 foe North Olmsted 5-3.  The Longhorns easily played their best game of the week, and even had the tying run on first in the bottom of the seventh inning before falling to the visiting Eagles.  West pounded about 9 hits—totaling more hits than their opponent for the first time in the week as well.

The game was started by junior Tommy Walker who looked strong on the mound—in direct contrast to how he looked against Fairview on Monday.  Walker gave up a pair of runs in the three innings he threw.  He struck out three and walked none.

Freshman Rory Zakareckis pitched the fourth and fifth innings for the Longhorns.  After a quick inning in the fourth, Zakareckis struggled in the second frame of his pitching debut, allowing three runs—all earned—before being relieved by sophomore Alex Robinson.  Robinson was outstanding, pitching the final 2 2/3 innings and allowing no runs, no hits, and no walks.
 
Offensively, the Longhorns got men on base all day, but struggled to get them in, leaving nine men on base over the course of the seven inning affair.  Walker continued his torrid hitting—he is 9 for 12 on the week—collecting two singles, a double and a walk—along with both Longhorn RBIs in his four plate appearances.  Walker doubled in sophomore Josh Cales in the first and then singled in freshman Owen Albers in the seventh.  Walker scored LW’s only other run in the first when North Olmsted’s centerfielder dropped a fly ball off the bat of Zakareckis with two outs.

West falls to 2-6 on the year.
